To add something to the talk about 2 year or Associate degree programs. In my career as a college professor, I have taught a number of students in a 2 year program. Many reasons for choosing from needing a faster program in order to earn money sooner, need a program the could build on etc. I would say probably 80% when on to a bachelor’s and Masters along with some getting a Ph.D. Not everyone’s education pathway is the same.
As for the kids on Cheer, some spoke on Ellen this week about what they have done since the program plus you can google them. One person went on to a 4 year college.
